Looks like Harrison Ford has franchise fever. In addition to recently revealing he'd be on board for another "Indiana Jones" movie, it appears the actor is also joining "The Expendables 3."
"Expendables" head honcho Sylvester Stallone confirmed the coup on Twitter on Tuesday, announcing that series regular Bruce Willis would be leaving the franchise, with Ford stepping in.
Stallone and Willis evidently parted on bad terms, with Stallone blasting the "Red 2" star in a subsequent tweet.
WILLIS OUT... HARRISON FORD IN !!!! GREAT NEWS !!!!! Been waiting years for this!!!!- Sylvester Stallone (@TheSlyStallone) August 6, 2013
A little harsh, no?
GREEDY AND LAZY ...... A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE- Sylvester Stallone (@TheSlyStallone) August 6, 2013
While there's no word on exactly what role Ford will play, it looks like he'll be joining forces with Stallone and company, which includes Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mickey Rourke, Wesley Snipes, Dolph Lundgren, Jackie Chan, Jet Li, and Jason Statham. Stallone hinted last month that Mel Gibsoncould play a villain in the film, while Kellan Lutz is also rumored to be joining the cast.
Looks like "The Expendables 3" is shaping up to be as action-star-studded as possible. Expect more updates via Stallone's Twitter account in the near future.
